ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp is in session this week in Nashville with participating campers from around the country. The residential camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education.

Songwriter/producer Ross Copperman and EMI Nashville artist Eric Paslay led campers in a songwriting session, creating “Happy Together,” an original song based on campers’ personal experiences and inspirations.

Maddie & Tae dropped by the Wildhorse Saloon to spend time with the campers while they shared stories from the first day of camp and participated in a line dancing session.

The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities.
